To get a closer look at this fundamental role of fantasy in human reality, I will extrapolate the discussion of fantasy to this pivotal thinker of Western modernity. 2 With Kant’s thinking, it is impossible to go beyond the formations that the imagination imposes upon our perception of things. We never perceive the things as they ‘are in themselves’ but merely as the ‘appear to us’. The imagination produces reality (I will elaborate this issue later in the chapter). The (Kantian) equation of ‘phantasia’ with the meaning of (productive) imagination, which is nowadays current, is historically nevertheless not the first time this has happened.
Signification – what is signified by a signifier – has an arbitrary and conventional character, and is determined by social or cultural contexts. Although Saussure mentions certain degrees of arbitrariness, the (philosophical) implication is the non-fixed character of signification. The signifier does not refer to a fixed concept. ‘If words had the job of representing concepts fixed in advance, one would be able to find exact equivalents for them as between one language and another. But this is not the case’ (Saussure 1916/1983: 114–115).
1 There is a crack in the ontological homogeneity of the world, so that the metaphysical dream of completion falls apart. As it puts this rupture at the centre of man (the ‘split subject’), Lacan’s theory of desire has a similarity with other great thinkers about man after the ‘death of god’. Heidegger characterizes man as ex-sistent, Plessner as ex-centric. Man has lost the substantial centre of his existence; it is an empty place now. Thinking the subject of desire must depart from this ‘void’, Žižek summarizes these insights by 39 LACAN’S THEORY OF FANTASY considering the decisive insight of modern Western thought to be that of the subject not being a steady substance but an empty core, a ‘substanceless void of the pure cogito’ (Žižek 1992: 168).
